School will be closed on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 due to bad weather.
Today was pajama day for our wildcats! They had so much fun showing off their cute pajamas and visiting other classrooms. They played games, did experiments, made crafts, watched movies and sang songs. We love getting to do activities where the entire school participates! It is fun to be a Woodway Christian Wildcat… especially on PJ day!
WCS Families! We now have an Instagram account!!! Please request to follow us at WCSWildcats. This is a great form of social media to see what our students are doing on campus. We will be posting a lot about how our students are putting into action our “Do Something” Theme and documenting all the other fun things we do as Wildcats.
Over the last few weeks our 5th-8th graders have been working hard on making story books in the english class! These books include many of the writing and grammar technics and tools they have learned this semester. After writing their stories, they bound the books and added pictures. Then Thursday, Friday and on Monday the sweet Preschool and Kindergarten teachers opened their classrooms for story time! Our bigs took time to read their stories to the littles and as you can see the little WCS wildcats were captivated! What a fun assignment that also blessed our younger kids!

4th Grade has officially sent one of their major service projects for the year around the world! In keeping with our theme this year (Do Something!) the 4th grade has spent several weeks packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. The students were divided into teams and given a certain amount of money to spend on what they wanted for the boxes. Students learned how to build a spreadsheet that would keep track of their spending and ensure that they did not go over budget. The teams worked so hard trying to find both fun and functional gifts. They also made sure that they prayed over each box and the child that would receive it. These students were really able to show their love in action!
Today our students took some time out of their morning to DEAR (Drop Everything And Read). We love DEAR Day because it is a time for us to get together in our Dens, which are made up from kiddos in Pre-K 3 year olds all the way through 8th grade and assigned a color. It is a great time for our new readers to get some practice, for our big kids to interact with our little kids and for us to be together as a school.
Does your wildcat need a wardrobe update? Land’s End is having GREAT sales right now! Check them out using the link below. Remember to register your student for WCS in your account to see our uniform options.
Our WCS clubs have been BUSY! The Cooking Club and Brush Lettering class met in October and the kids had a blast! They were talking about all that they did for days after. The Community Service Club has been busy serving our community and others. They have set up a bulletin board so we can celebrate random acts of kindness. When we see a student or staff member being kind we fill out a leaf and put it on the tree. You can see all the kindness that is being shown with our FULL fall tree! The running club ran in the Donut Dash (sponsored by First Baptist Woodway) and the Zoo Stampede. They earned first place in many of the races! If your student would like to be part of a club let us know… they can still sign up!
Last Friday we celebrated the men and women who have served our country in the military. The middle school students walked in the Veteran’s Day Parade in downtown Waco. The Pre-K-5th grades stayed on campus, wore flag colors and learned about what it means to be a veteran. We are so thankful for the sacrifices that have been made for us and our country!
